Create the following sentences required below and then put them together into your introduction paragraph.
A ] Creating the Hook
Create 4 different kinds of hooks about the subject of this introduction – remember that this time we are focusing on chapters 3,4,5:
Write an interesting statistic/fact about this subject that most people do not know – quote your source
Write a famous quote which may apply to this subject – put the quote in quotation marks (author of quote)
Write an important question that we might ask about the topic. [do not ask about intuitive thinking or thin slicing as the reader may not know what this is]
Write a bit of wisdom / old saying you know that is suggested by this subject. It can come from the USA or your country.
Look at your 4 hooks and decide which one you like the best and use that one in your paragraph 🙂
B ] Background information:
1. Write a sentence that explains your favorite hook and relate it to the book, using author name and book title.
2. Write a sentence that introduces who the author of the book is – profession, life experiences that are important. Again, if you use information from a source, you need to quote the source.
3. Write 3 sentences telling what the book is about. Define important terms like intuitive decision making or thin slicing in your own words. Focus on chapters 3,4,5.
4. Write 3 sentences explaining why the book is important and why someone should read it.
